Ohio REALTORS are standing up for homeownership in an unprecedented way — Add your voice to this fight!

Congress is threatening tax incentives for homeowners, like the mortgage interest deduction and the state and local property tax deduction. These incentives are critical for a strong housing market that creates jobs and builds stable communities. Do not let tax reform become a tax increase for middle class homeowners.

In fact, the average Ohio taxpayer that claims the mortgage interest deduction was able to subtract $6,150 from their taxable income in 2014. At a marginal rate of 25 percent, the average Ohio taxpayer saved $1,540 in taxes because of the mortgage interest deduction.  The MID matters to the bottom line of a whole lot of people in the Buckeye State. The “tax reform” being considered by Congress a bad plan and Ohio’s REALTORS, with one easy click, can tell their member of Congress to protect home ownership for the middle class.

Ohio REALTORS have responded to this critical Call for Action in an unprecedented way — surpassing our goal of 20 percent participation! Let’s keep the pressure up and go for 25 percent. Join Ohio REALTORS Director of Political Affairs Carrie Arblaster in this fight by Taking Action NOW!
